Another Yankee hurt

And guess what? I love it. Jaret Wright was put on the Dl with a shoulder injury. I bet Steinbrenner and Cashman are kicking themselves in the ass for signing him over jon Lieber, who is only 4-0 to start off the year. Better than any Yankee starter thus far.

Jaret Wright was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with yet another shoulder injury, and the New York Yankees right-hander will miss at least four to six weeks.

Wright walked off the mound with one out in the sixth inning of a 10-2 loss to the Texas Rangers on Saturday because of pain in his right shoulder. This is the eighth time he has been on the disabled list in a nine-year career and the sixth time because of a problem with the shoulder -- including season-ending surgery in 2000 and 2001.

Tests on Sunday showed torn scar tissue in Wright's shoulder, and he was relieved by that.

"There wasn't a whole lot of sleep with everything going through your mind what it could be," Wright said. "I think tearing scar tissue is better than anything else."

Wright will have a cortisone shot in four or five days, once the swelling goes down, and then will go to the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Fla., for a rehabilitation assignment.

"He will be treated very conservatively," general manager Brian Cashman said. "Four to six weeks is the earliest timetable for him to get back."

How long til the Yankees try and back out of this contract too?
